Wild herb tour
During the summer months, our fields, meadows and forests are full of hidden natural treasures.
The excursion starts with a welcome drink on our farm, from there it continues with a guided walk, where you learn how to find and identify the most common edible plants such as lady's mantle, yarrow, birch and spruce (depending on the summer months).
After picking different types of herbs and plants, we will then show you, together with your help, how to prepare a good meal out of them.
Nature trail hike
On our Puustila farm in Ilomantsi, sheep cultivate the traditional hilly landscape. We offer guided nature walks across the meadows, where you can learn more about nature, slash-and-burn forests, the care of the traditional environment, the sheep and the hilly landscape.
During the hike we stop at a campfire in the shelter of the forest, to drink coffee or tea brewed on an open fire. Along with the hot drinks, we serve a savoury snack and something sweet. In the end, we show the guests the products that are derived from the sheep.
Lamb cooking lesson
During the lesson we make 3–4 dishes with accompaniments, depending on the size of the group, from local lamb’s meat. To finish, we eat.
The lesson is organised for a group of about 10 to 15 people. The lesson takes about 5 hours.
Depending on the weather, we can organize a sleigh ride for 1–3 people. It needs to be booked in advance. The ride lasts an hour, and during it we stop to serve a hot drink and a snack. The sleigh is pulled by our Finnhorse, Lovi.
Snow shoe walk
We can take groups of 1–8 people snowshoe walking over the quiet hills and wintry forests. The price includes guide services, use of snowshoes and poles, and a small snack.
The walk takes about 1–1:30 hours.
